The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge administers over 30 scholarship funds, with nearly $85,000 available, for graduating high school seniors and adults seeking new skills and higher education, which includes the pursuit of a technical certificate at a community college or trade school, associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or graduate degree.
With a few exceptions, only one online scholarship application is required to apply to our scholarship program. Application deadline is March 5, 2018.
